APRIL 11, 2014 – Two attorneys at Davis Wright Tremaine LLP have been selected as among the Top 75 IP Litigators in California by The Daily Journal, a leading statewide legal newspaper.
Recognized in the Daily Journal’s April 9 issue were Kelli Sager and Alonzo Wickers IV of our Los Angeles office. This marks Sager’s sixth consecutive appearance on the list and Wickers’ third.
The Daily Journal cited Sager’s work representing the Los Angeles Times and the Tribune Co. in a copyright infringement suit filed by a freelance photographer. Sager prevailed on a motion to compel arbitration and won a judgment from the arbitrator, who also granted her client’s request for a quarter-million dollars in fees and costs.
Wickers was cited for his work representing Electronic Arts in a series of lawsuits filed by groups of former college and professional athletes challenging how the videogame producer allegedly used their names and images without their permission or compensation. The publication also noted Wickers’ work providing prebroadcast review for boundary-pushing shows on Comedy Central.
